Make sure you have the door or a window open when extending or retracting a slide!

If the cables are not adjusted properly and get slack at one end or the other of travel, they will get kinked near the terminations and break there.

Fortunatly they are not THAT hard to replace if you follow the threading and adjustment instructions.

Mine came mis adjusted. The slide worked, in a fashion but would not have for long. Proper adjustments got it working smoothly and evenly. The cable mechanism is simple and reliable but does require adjustment to get the tensions correct. Its easy to see when they are not because of the exposed cables in both positions.

Adjust them so the pull on the bracket is straight. If the cable is out of alighment it will soon break at the connection of the Swag stemball. All of mine came from the factory with the bracket installed across a seam of two different heights. This misalighned the pull by only the thickness of the outer metal, maybe an 1/16" yet it was enough to eventually break the cable.

Is there a check / adjustment procedure anywhere?
This sounds like one to stay ahead of the curve on.

Re: make sure you have a window or door open, what I was trying to say is that if you don't and you extend the slide the air has to come from somewhere, a friend of mine found this out with a collapsed holding tank (lucky it was empty)!
